at all. i think this was an exercise in showing that the government and the bank of japan, the central bank are on the same page. they certainly delivered that. i think the fact that it's an open-ended asset purchase program, it was more than what the markets had been factoring in. i think the dollar/yen moves are sort of moving independently right now. and i think a lot of that has to do with the comments that we had from government saying, oh, we're not trying to manipulate the currency, which throws into question this competitive devaluation story they were banking on. instead of being explicit about that over the last couple of weeks, now they're going to have to be a little bit more implicit about that. but the man of the hour, mr. shiraka shirakawa, the bank of japan, here is what he had to say. >> translator: japan believes growth is important. we teamed up with the dwoft to strengthen our policies and work on this goal together as one. >> let's take a look at the technicals about this 2% inflation target. because at the same time today, the bank of japan is saying the price of
cards to work with to form a government here. one of his deputies, the deputy prime minister, frankly admitted that, in fact, they could have lost the young voters in this election and that is the main reason why they are now down a quarter from the total of the seats that they had in the outgoing. >> north korea is promising to strengthen its nuclear program after a new round of u.n. sanctions. this victory council unanimously passed a resolution in response to rocket launch -- the security council unanimously passed a resolution in response to the rocket launch in december. >> the draft resolution has been adopted unanimously. as resolution 27, 2013. >> as resolution 2087, 2013. >> the security council condemned what it described as a missilemelissposted technology and warned that for the consequences. >> today's resolution makes clear that, if north korea chooses again to defy the international community, such as by conducting of the and -- conducting another launch for a nuclear test, then the council will take significant action. >> the difference was the near- minute response fr
just heard from those at the imf yesterday. now we're hearing from the japanese government. officials there project that the country's economy will grow 2.5% in the coming fiscal year. that's due to stimulus measures and a global economic recovery. a large scale economic package will push up the gross domestic product. they forecast a moderate global economic recovery will lift corporate sentiment and boost spending on plant and equipment. the officials expect people will rush toake more purchases including things like houses before a plant consumption tax hike in april 2014. the government has concluded that the economy will expand 5 2.5% in real terms and 2.7% in nominal terms. based on the assumption that prices will pick up modestly the government projects nominal growth will exceed real growth for the first time in 16 years. the dollar is gaining further ground against the yen. earlier it hit a high. now it's changing hands to 39 yen. traders have seen rates drop to a five-year low. that's provided a brighter outlook for the american economy. the consumer price index dropped in

money in my money? it makes economic sense. this culture of promoting these ideas with government capitol only creates government welfare or corporate welfare and creates corporate dependence. gerri: companies that fail as we talked about some many times in the show. whether you're talking about solyndra or a number of others that our government financed. you would think that maybe these are just wacked-out the trees coming of the wild ideas. and back, this green growth alliance has members like the world bank, deutsche bank, any number, ge can hsbc as members. these big companies who went to up the bus in their expensive airlines to my drinking champagne, and they're telling us what to do with our taxpayer dollars. it just makes me angry, and i think what is the fairness and that? >> there is no fairness. and it is something, the occupy wall street and the partnership agreement among corporate welfare. these huge companies are really pigs at the trough when it comes to a taxpayer money, and does not matter how big or small the company. there is money to be had these companies goi
